Another glorious summer
Today is bittersweet for me... today is the last day of summer vacation. The last 73 days have been fun at times, stressful at times and sweet at times... it was hard when there were tight deadlines and the kids fought relentlessly; it was sweet when mornings didn't have to start so early; it was awesome doing things with the kids or just do nothing and hang out quietly resting on each other... there were things we would have loved to do more if we had the time, but just having them at home was wonderful! Tomorrow we settle back, or struggle to settle into a new routine of early mornings, rush rush, sudden quiet, bus stops, chess clubs, homework and more... looking forward to it all, but can't ignore the sense of time passing all too quickly and the urge to fill more life into it!
